We did this trip because we made a kayak and decided to go. The first time getting into the boat was scary because I knew what I was doing but I hadn't done it in a while. The boat we built was made out of wood.
The first kayaking trip was really fun. We launched off of these huge backings in the Pemi River. It was like we were in this monster-infested river and we had to paddle really hard to get to the other side so we wouldn't get eaten. My expectations of the day was that the day was going to be hot. It was, but it also was kind of cold in the water. It was really easy and fun and that's how I wanted it to be because if it weren't, it would have been boring.
